not all guitar players but most. Ask them what they think about Malmsteen, or jason becker, or angelo, and they say "he's too technical, theres no emotion its just a bunch of note." then you ask what they think of people who imo play with some emotion such as slash or paige or hendrix or clapton etc. "he's too sloppy, his technique isn't very good etc etc" like where's the happy medium between the two? Does technique really matter if they sound great? I have a feeling its just people likeing to cut other people down but its pretty rediculous. I've run into this a ton of times especially on the net.
